Baker & Tarpaga Dance Project ponders the visibility and invisibility of race and privilege and how violence and love live on in the body’s memories. Drawing from the text of white anti-racism activist Tim Wise and theories of the AfricanDiasporic movement, Beautiful Struggle is a highly physical dance theater work that integrates live music, text, and performance art.
